I'm not sure where this came from, but this acrostic gets right to the heart of what we want and need from our friends.
F - forgiving
R - respects your standards
I - inspires you to be like Christ
E - example
N - nice and kind
D - dependable and loyal
When I reminisce about the friends I've had in the past, my best friend when I was a child was Shar. We were neighbors and inseparable.
In high school I was part of a group of young men and women who met all the 'friend' criteria. We had such fun together. I knew I could have a good time and be safe with these kids.
When I became an adult, my best friend became my husband CL. He knows me pretty good and still likes me...
Other friends include my parents, and some special bloggy friends. Even some of my children and siblings are my friends. Pretty cool!
Of course the best of all best friends are my Heavenly Father, his son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Without these 3 in my life I would not be the woman I am now.
Who are some of your friends and what do you look for in a friend?
Next week I'd like to discuss what our friends should expect from us. I hope you'll join in the conversation.
I have wonderful news!
To celebrate Memorial Day, Integrative Nutrition is offering a chance to save on the cost of enrollment if you enroll between Tuesday, May 21st – Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th. You’ll be able to save $500 + an additional $500 if you pay in full.
That’s up to $1,000 in savings!
The next class begins in July and this is the perfect time to enroll because you’ll be able to get started on your materials and get to know the community before the course begins, so you’ll be ahead of the curve. This is a very rare opportunity since IIN has greatly reduced the frequency of these savings offers so give them a call if you don’t want to miss out. Let me know if you have any questions about the school, I’m happy to share my personal experience with you. Space will be limited so call (877)733-1520 or email Coachblair@integrativenutrition.com right away and tell them I referred you!
